Window Treatments for South-Facing Wall of Glass?

Window Treatments for South-Facing Wall of Glass?

Q: I am stumped as to what window treatments to use with my southern exposure windows, plus door. The ceilings are 8-and-a-half feet, and I love the height-extending and softening effect of floor-to-ceiling sheers, but I feel that the windows need something else to block out the full sun in the afternoon...

Also, there is room for air-con units in the wall under the windows. Would interior mounted bamboo shades or venetian blinds work better? Would it be too much to have blinds and some other kind of drapery? Then, there's the door on the right. How can the window treatment incorporate it? Many thanks. Sent by Ilona
